    I created a site on a test server and Font Awesome Icons worked fine.  However when I moved it to another server some browsers don’t view the font awesome icons.

    Anyone got any ideas what the issue might be?

    If it helps… in troubleshooting.
    I’m using Alora 2.5.0
    I’m on a GoDaddy sharred Linux server with a dedicated IP.

    My Font Awesome Icons do not display within Firefox.
    I’ve also noticed that some of the ‘simple’ things like Checklists no longer work, even with IE.
    ex: |checklist icon=”check” iconcolor=”light” circle=”no”| |/checklist|

    I assumed (wrong), that this was a Firefox issue… I’m just now learning this has been occurring since I upgraded back in Dec 2013.  Post a comment in one of my threads about it… but got busy with other stuff and forgot about it.

    What is your site url?

    In the header.php at line 56 try replacing

    custom: { families: ['FontAwesome'], urls: ['<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/fonts/fontawesome.css'] }

    with

    custom: { families: ['FontAwesome'], urls: ['//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css'] }

    Awesome… that worked.  However, do you foresee any issues with hot linking into the cloudflare.com domain?

    They are a reliable cdn provider and I don’t think they will be shutting down their cloud anytime soon. Do check out https://cdnjs.com/about
